    the legging jeans are pretty unbeatable for $29.90. I bought 2 in every color

    This was weeks ago so I don't know what the situation in-store is now but there are legging jeans and skinny fit jeans and the skinny jeans felt and fit much better than the legging jeans.

    the legging jeans aren't leggings, just jeans with some elastene

    I've been wearing my linen casual shirts on a pretty consistent basis. I sized down and out the dryer they fit a bit too snug in chest but loosen up to the Perfect Fit in about half an hour. again, I'd go with what's closest to your shoulder size to see if you should size down or not. love the dark grey and blue with jeans and tobacco suede wingtips. really wish uniqlo would come out with more plaid patterns or a burgundy.

    Linen shirt with brown suede wingtips sounds incongruous—summer up top, autumn below. But props if you can make it look good.

    Depends how you want them to fit. I think I like the looser fit but am not 100% decided.

    Pictures don't capture it, but the top block is pretty snug on the mediums for me. You may have different results though.

    Just tried on their regular skinnys. Quality has gotten worse. Now 73% Cotton. Fit is supertight in the crotch and thighs and stacking looks terrible as well.

    Not justifiable for 49.90
    FWIW Gap skinny has a very similar design and indigo wash for only 30. And they have more cotton.

    TTS if you lift or just have big thighs, can probably size down otherwise or if you want a skinny fit.

    it's weird but the black fit slimmer than the blue. I went 33 in blue, 34 in black. i'm somewhere in between the 2.

    i find that with a lot of uniqlo stuff, the same pieces can fit differently in different colours.

    The linen-cotton tees are OK. Shrunk a slight bit after wash. Some colors are also a bit itchy on the skin.

    Last season's premium tees were my go to tshirts, but I too noticed the new ones fit a bit smaller. The new measurements show that too. A bit more than 1/2" shorter in the body, tighter shoulders, shorter sleeves, at least in XS.

    Yep. Thinking of sizing up to XL, even though I'm a medium in the button front shirts. Or switching to H&M or something if that doesn't work out.

    I'm pretty bummed about it to be honest, I have like 10 of their premium tees from last year and hope they don't wear out until I can find something better. Was thinking of switching to WvG and getting the membership once I have some more $$$ this summer depending on how their stuff fits

    Regarding the supima tees, are the light grey ones see through. I have a couple l/s ones in white and I end up having to wear an undershirt underneath. Was wondering if the light grey color would be better and not show my nipples.

    Do the vintage chinos stretch in the waist at all? Just got a pair and 29" is slightly tight but thats the size I wear in all their bottoms.
